john mccain and lindsey graham want to work on reform. john boehner wants to find common ground. and even sean hannity is trying to shift to the middle. >> we have to get rid of the immigration issue all together. it's simple. you control the border first. you create a pathway for those that are here. you don't say you have to go home. and that's a position i have evolved on. because you know what, it's got to be resolved. the majority of people here, some have criminal records, you can send them home. but if they are law-abiding, kids are born here, first secure the border, pathway to citizenship, done. whatever little penalties you want to put in there. then it's done. >> pathway to citizenship, done. where was all this talk before the election? you see this is all about getting votes. it's not coming from the heart. reforming immigration policy is a huge risk for the republicans. they could alienate their base. there's no guarantee they will win the latino vote in the long run. let's turn to ruy teixeira. great to have you with us. >> delighted to be here. >> you predicted th
thing the campaign was expecting. they thought they would get more turnout than john mccain did in 2008. they thought republicans would turn out to vote in larger numbers. that didn't happen. they actually thought it would get 2 million fewer votes than john mccain did. even in their strategies. romney got momentum, remember aof that first dough bait. people got really excited on the right. that was a huge opportunity for him but he didn't really kptize on that with any kind of message. he was playing it too safe. critics say when you think about sports it was almost like he was playing prevent/defense in football except he never had the lead, just playing prevent defense when he was behind. gayle and charlie? >> jan, thanks. to john dickerson. of all the mistakes now being analyzed, what was the biggest mistake? isn't it always in the end the candidate, not the strategy? >> well, you know, we're in the recripple recriminations and finger pointing stage. you're fundamentally right. this candidate seemed out of place with both himself and his party. and that see

iss ers who lean democratic, have grown. in 2004, president bush got 40% of the latino vote. john mccain, 31% in 2008, and for mitt romney this year, just 27%. in the wake of tuesday, republicans soul-searching will look at places like florida's osceola county, bush won it. but a growing number of constituency now helped obama there. >> you go out and disrespect the hispanic community like that, you think we don't notice that? >> reporter: in florida alone, the hispanic population has grown since 2008. but among them, republicans are perceived as tone deaf on critical topics, immigration reform. >> well, the answer is people decide they can do better by going home because they can't find work here. >> reporter: the words matter. >> even though barack obama has deported more undocumented people in the history of the united states, it is the words that are used. self-deportation, i think, was really, really hurtful. >> reporter: republicans must think about how to balance their core ideas against this shifting demographic landscape. >> republicans, at least at the national level want to wi
be post george bush. we knew it would never be dick cheney. it did not end up being john mccain. it definitely did not end up being sarah palin. for awhile it looked like it would be michael steele. how about john boehner? speaker of the house, previous speakers have been able to fashion that job into a national leadership role. but john boehner has not done that. no disrespect, but nobody thinks of him as the leader of the republican party. mitt romney did have that job. mitt romney for awhile was the leader of the republican party. we can prove it with evidence. this past june president obama walked out into the rose garden and announced he was going to stop the deportation of kids who were here without papers through no fault of their own. when president obama announced that, beltway reporters immediately went to the republican leaders in congress to see what's the official response tr that? what's the official position on that issue. here's what the reporters were told by the republicans in congress. "senate republican leader mitch mcconnell said that gop lawmakers will wait
john mccain. >> it is because of the moderate label he was tagged with. it was because white women in our area watched those commercials. in cuyahoga county, they registered 140,000 more traditional democratic voters. there were prosirchghts in kihoch hoga that voted 114-3 for obam a. precincts in cincinnati, 328-1 for obama. >> sean: it was like two states. >> if the same number of african-americans in ohio voted in 2012 and 2008, romney would have won the state. >> sean: it was so close, virginia, ohio, florida. there have to be adjustments. but you don't compromise your principles. they have to do a better job of messaging. it has to be the right candidate and a united party. >> i dolled one thing. abortion -- right to life. it is hispanic issues, getting on the ballot-- >>> but we can't haved to akin say something as dumb as he did. >> sean: billy can you thinkham, thanks for the full report. >> thank you. >> sean: i have a message for the g.o.p. tonight. we will see and check in with eric bowling and kimberly guilfoyle. and then, we weren't even close to sorting through bengha
to me three weeks ago mitt romney would get fewer votes than john mccain and it looks like he'll be 2 million viewer, i would have been du dumbfounded. >> michael, thanks for joining us. we have had a good time arguing and discussing things occasionally agreeing on things but often not. let me ask you about that republican world view. i wonder what color the sky is. how did they see this election the way rasmussen pollsters would see it, basically a romney romp? how did they get it so wrong? >> i think there was a feeding into a mythology that somehow the country would categorically reject the president because we had, that the country would somehow say to itself, you know, we can't live with this new land of big government health care, big government spending, et cetera, because we can't. and that's fine. the problem was in articulating to the american people why we can't live with those things, why those things are bad, and instead, as you have noted many times on this program, we got w waylaid by conversations about women's bodies and abortion and things that didn't go to the nub o
for sure yesterday. >>> really, the -- it's, senator john mccain, has issue with how this was handled as well as lindsay graham, and lindsay graham with a pretty fiery statement said, mr. president don't think for one minute that i don't hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander-in-chief, before, during and after the attack. given what i know now i have no intention of promoting any one who is up to their eyeballs in the benghazi debacle. and susan rice currently u.n. ambassador, being floated as hillary clinton's successor. >> also interesting, some report going on about how, times have changed though. because obviously, many years ago when they were nominated condoleezza rice to be secretary of the state at the time, she was national security adviser she had gone around saying about the weapons of mass destruction in iraq, other intelligence. ended up proving false at the time. mccain stood by her. despite obviously the wrong information that she was disseminating at the time. saying "i am not going to mention my colleague's name. some of the rema
you support comprehensive immigration reform like john mccain did but then refuse to do it when president obama is in the white house, when you have the nominee of the party, mitt romney, saying people should self deport. so their house and go back to mexico. you cannot win latino votes when you make war against them . what againstin california has happen nationwide. -- what has happened in california happened nationwide. i am not sure how much credit arthur davis has. i was disappointed when he left the party and supported mitt romney. i did not buy his reasons for doing so. i would disagree with him on this. i do not think republicans should write off the african- american party at all. they are talking about jobs, improving the economy. if they are willing to save medicare and social security are going to stay, they can get african-american votes. to write them off as arthur davis suggested i think would be a colossal mistake. host: we will get to your calls in just a moment. you can also send us a comment on facebook or twitter. what surprised you about the election? guest:
was underperforming john mccain among hispanics, he actually won more of the african-american vote than john mccain did. now, he won 6% instead of 4%, but he actually got up to like 8% or 9% among 18 to 29-year-old african-americans which is the group that's hardest hit by unemployment. again, these are tiny numbers. >> mitt romney underperformed a light post with hispanics. don't get started on that. >> a jack kent republican would be very welcome right now to create some sense of competition. we have 10% or 11% of the country right now in free fall and neither party taking it seriously. that's bad. >> it's not as if the republicans didn't work for the african-american and latino vote, they actively rejected it. that was the sense i got. they used it as a way to run up the score with white voters and really created a corrosive toxic discourse that i think hurt everybody. >> what's your unsolicited advice today, ana? >> well, my unsolicited advice is for -- >> hold it up. >> how do you say that in spanish? an extra exclamation point. >> say yeb or bushito. he will respond to either in miami. in ful

candidate had been maybe in my lifetime. or certainly in the last 30 years. john mccain almost lost the republican primary season in 2008 because he was in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. he had to double back. they're going to have to get out of that. they're going to have to be able to say there is a different path forward, not just to citizenship, but to dealing with immigration as an issue, which is complicated, understandably. but start with more actually free market type of solutions and say, hey, look, why are we micromanaging the number of immigrants from each and every country? why don't we expand the number of visas? start with that, certainly. start shutting down people who use immigration as a very passionate and very irrational issue from which to sort of project all of their fears. >> we are already starting to see and hear some of that from folks on the right. let's switch gears and talk about this year's electorates. according to exit polls, there's been a steady decline of white voters. in 2008, they made out 80%. in 2004, you see it go down. in 2012, we'
